FOCUS On God


Stop Making Excuses
Stop making excuses for why you’re not spending time with God or why you can’t help others. Busyness is not a valid excuse for us not to do our deeds; busyness doesn’t make up for responsibility. Busyness is not a valid excuse for not spending time with God; if you don’t have the time, then make the time.
Even when you are busy spending time on God by doing work for Him, you should get some daily personal time with Him so that you can be a better help for other people when you’re out.

Many people think that God should spend time on them, helping them and working miracles in their lives, but are not willing to spend their time on God. What if God didn’t have time for you?
Start prioritizing right, and you will see miracles in your life as your heavenly account fills up through good works.
Don’t work God into your schedule, but work your schedule around God.

 

Give God Your First And Your Last
Prioritize Him in your everyday life and in your schedule. Start your day with Him, and end it with Him.

Connect with Him in the morning as the first thing you do in your daily routine, through prayers and through thanking Him for everything you’re grateful for. And do it in the night as the last thing you do before you go to bed.
Seek Him, and you shall find Him. If you’re hungry for knowing God, you will diligently seek Him, and when you’re diligently seeking Him, you will find Him.

Deuteronomy 4:29:
But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.

 

Be Hungry For God
Deuteronomy 8:3:
He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.

What do you do if you’re hungry and you’re starving? You seek food, and you do everything to find something to eat and fill your belly with.
As we seek food when we’re hungry, we should also seek God and be hungry for His nurturing words and presence in our lives. “For man cannot live by bread alone,” but needs spiritual food to feed the soul.

1 Peter 2:2:
Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation.

 

Focus On What Matters
Luke 10:38:

Martha and Mary:

Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word.
But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”

We have enough things to worry about and to be distracted by. But there’s one thing that is more important than all the other things we fill our lives and minds with. Having the right focus and the right foundation and using our time right is essential to whether we will succeed in this life or not. It will help you make better choices, and you can only get a right foundation by focusing and spending your time with God.

Martha was worried and stressed about all her obligations, and she used her time on these things instead of spending her time with Jesus and listening to the Word Of God that He spoke, which her sister Mary did.

Mary chose what was important, and so should we. We should prioritize God and schedule our life around Him, not the other way around. Our time here is limited so we should use our time Wisely and Focus on What Really Matters.
